SereniTea: Calm Rose was blended to assist with headaches caused by stress and tension. It will also assist with anxiety. The taste is a lightly lemon rose. We have two versions of this tea, the original, and then one blended to be safe for people who cannot take aspirin, or are taking certain psychiatric medications (alternate).
Many of our SereniTeas focus on dealing with stress and anxiety. The herbal toolbox gives you a lot of different options for working with these issues, and whenever you are dealing with emotions, the personal taste preferences of the person in question are very important.
One of the things that goes hand in hand with high levels of stress and anxiety are headaches. This tea was blended to combat that specific kind of headache, as well as ease some of the root causes.
SereniTea: Clear Skies was the result of two things. The first was that when you are dealing with the mind and emotions, as our SereniTeas do, you need to have a variety of tastes on hand. How someone reacts to the taste and smell of a tea is almost as important as the medicinal herbs you include. The second was that I had been reading about the medicinal properties of Basil, and had wanted to create a drinking tea centering on it.
SereniTea: Clear Skies stars with Gunpowder Green tea, and then adds Basil and Lemongrass for taste (as well as medicinal effects), and Oatstraw for added medicinal value and nutrition.
SereniTea: Happy Dreams was blended to help with insomnia, especially if that insomnia is caused by depression. It has an herbal flower flavour.
A cup or two of this half an hour before you go to sleep should help ease you towards sleep, and make that sleep more restful.
SereniTea: Linda's Don't Panic is a Rose tea for helping with stress, anxiety, and panic.
Sometimes a straw is added, and your the stress levels you are used to abruptly become something you cannot deal with. A friend who carried heavy levels of stress and anxiety in her life to begin with was confronted with a situation that made them skyrocket. They became crippling.
She asked me to make a tea to help her manage what she needed to manage, and Linda's Don't Panic was the resultant tea.
SereniTea: Logan's Elixir was blended to be a child friendly assist to the symptoms and effects of ADHD.
This tea was created for my godson, to be both a tea for use when he was having immediate issues, and one that would ease the condition over time. He was very happy with it, and actually used to ask for his tea.
This tea will help to balance moods, and assist with clarity of thought and mental focus. While blended for children, it will help with adult issues as well.
SereniTea: Mellow Breeze was blended to assist with stress and anxiety. The taste centers around mint.
Many of our SereniTeas center around dealing with stress and anxiety. One of the things I have learned about teas to help with mood is that the personal preferences for taste and smell are very important. Thankfully, the herbal toolbox gives us a lot of options for mood leavening, so we've been able to create an array of options to suit different tastes.
SereniTea: Mellow Rose is a tea for helping with stress and anxiety. The taste is a light lemony rose.
Our SereniTeas are teas for the mind and emotions. We have quite a few specifically for dealing with stress and anxiety. Part of this is because there is quite a range of herbs in the toolkit that can help. The other is that when you are dealing with mental and emotional response, the reaction to the taste and scent is very important, and varies person to person.
Mellow Rose was part of a destress sampler that I put together for a friend.
Questa's Tranquility was blended on the request of a friend. She was looking for something that would balance out her life and add a bit more ability to relax, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I also blended it to have an anti-depressant effect. The taste is Lavender and Lemon with a an earthy herbal background.
The woman who requested this tea has a life that is made of stress. There are good things in it, too, but sometimes you need a little help in dealing with stress and tension when you are juggling motherhood, a small business, and chronic health issues.
Questa's was an interesting journey for me. Part of this was caused because I had a medication list to work from, and wanted to make a tea that was safe interacting with all of the factors my friend was dealing with. Part of this was because at the time my doctor was having me test a new muscle relaxant. The test... did not go well. My biochemistry reacted to the medication by turning all of my muscles into concrete... and I had consistent problems with tension even before the new medication made everything exponentially worse. My first test of Questa's happened during this medication test, and the tea was about the only thing that made "try it for two weeks" survivable.
The medication research did lead to two variants of the tea. St. John's Wort is a lovely herb for a variety of different issues, but it does not play well with most psychiatric medication. If you are taking psychiatric meds, or medications for nerve pain, I would like to be able to check and see which version would be best for you. You can also just assume that you will need the version without St. John's Wort, if you would prefer.
SereniTea: River to Book was blended to assist with a fairly complex set of issues. Adult ADHD, with all the inherent focus and clarity issues, deperession, and anxiety often triggered by the results of the first two. River to Book is intended to help you find balance and focus within both your mind and emotions - the capacity to think through the emotional fog that can occur with both depression and anxiety.
SereniTea: Rusty's Recuperation was born out of a custom request for a tea for Ulcerative Colitis. As I did my usual research work, I came to the conclusion that I could not cover all the aspects I wanted to properly in a single tea.
I also decided I wanted to make a tea to help ease the stress I could imagine the disease I was reading about causing.
This tea was the end result.
